The heavyweight boxing champion fielded in some of the brightest stars in football when EA Sports asked him to form his dream squad for the video game FIFA 19 Ultimate Team.

For his team manager, the British boxer picked the Manchester United tactician, Jose Mourinho, who had a priceless reaction last year after Joshua’s attempt to kick a football during a kickabout with his team.
He then chose the 4-3-3 formation for the attack pattern of his squad with a deadly frontline consisting of the triumvirate of Marcus Rashford, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo, the player with the highest rating on the game.
Manning the mid-field would be Paulo Dybala of Juventus and the dynamic duo of World Cup titlists, N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba. Completing the starting cast are Antonio Valencia, Harry Maguire, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo as the back four while top-ranked Davide De Gea will serve as the goalkeeper.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi, Harry Kane, Luka Modric, Jesse Lingard, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Troy Deeney and Ronaldo Nazario will provide a big spark off the bench.
Joshua has already made an appearance in the video game and you can go up against his star-studded ‘Featured Squad’ for one week.

The WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight champ has been vocal about his obsession with FIFA 19. In fact, he revealed two years ago that he had to stop playing the video game because it has taken a toll to his boxing career.
